Nonresidential Lighting and Electrical Power Distribution Guide for 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards

Nonresidential Lighting and Electrical Power Distribution Guide for 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards
03/13/2017

The California Lighting Technology Center’s 2016 Nonresidential Lighting and Electrical Power Distribution Guide assists builders and lighting industry professionals in navigating the nonresidential lighting portion of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6). California's new nonresidential Building Energy Efficiency Standards took effect on January 1, 2017.

Lighting Fact Sheets for 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards

02/23/2017

The California Lighting Technology Center has developed a series of fact sheets designed to raise awareness of the 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards, which took effect on January 1, 2017. These materials are intended to increase knowledge and implementation of code-compliant lighting for California’s residential and non-residential buildings. 

Available fact sheets focus on key areas of the Energy Standards including:

New Generation of LED Lighting Solutions

A Lamp Testing

Widespread adoption of LED lighting for general illumination applications is poised to be the single, largest advancement in lighting efficiency during the 21st century. Due to its potential, a variety of market actors have introduced LED products and made associated performance claims that have set the technology up with somewhat unrealistic expectations regarding system efficacy and longevity. To compete in this market, LED manufacturers have focused on research to improve efficacy and reduce product costs, often at the expense of product quality and feature optimization.

What’s New in CLTC’s Project Portfolio

Energy-Efficient Lighting System Evaluations for Commercial Applications

The potential to reduce energy consumption in existing and commercial buildings is enormous. On average, 30% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Lighting has a large potential for energy savings for any U.S. building end use, with a significant fraction of that potential coming from lighting controls.

Energy-Efficient Lighting Systems Evaluations for Commercial Applications

CLTC, in partnership with Southern California Edison, recently kicked off a new project portfolio to assess controls, lighting, and daylighting technologies and their potential for commercial applications. The new projects will have elements of market assessment, EM&V, and selected demonstrations.

The project focus is on evaluating the following technologies:

Advanced Lighting Control Systems: Bench Testing

11/04/2015

Advanced lighting control systems provide networked control and monitoring capabilities of connected luminaires via onboard metering and system reporting features.  These advanced features allow system owners to dynamically balance visual comfort and lighting energy use.  CLTC, in collaboration with SDG&E, developed a technology validation program to determine the accuracy and reliability of onboard metering and system reporting features of advanced lighting control systems.
